What is included in a Monogram Promodeler kit?

  • What is normally included in a Monogram Promodeler kit?

     I know they usually come with some PE stuff, are resin pieces and masks normally included as well? 

      I just picked up a Monogram B-24 and it included resin pieces for the guns, resin engines, resin wheels, a huge PE details sheet, as well as a full set of masks. Was that all added by the seller?

    Yes..all that was added by the seller. I've never seen a Pro-modeller B-24, I could be wrong but I dont think there was one. The only pro-mode heavy bomber I know was the B-17G. That included PE parts and crew figures. No resin, or masks came in any of those kits.

     

     

  • I have had several different "Pro Modeler" kits The BF -109 came with resin wheels and upgraded decals, thr Fw -190 just had upgraded decals, a 69 Dodge Daytona had PE and Again U/G Decals.

    I think Hans has several of the B-24's maybe he will see this and pipe in.

    So they did do a pro-mod B-24? I've never seen that but I'd love to.

  • I have two of their 1/48 scale kits, Me-410 and Fw-190D. Both bought brand new from a local hobby shop 3-4 years ago, and none have PE or resin parts. I must admit that the details inside and out are outstanding, along with a beautiful decal sheet.

    Yeah, it's a B-24D... The Pro Modeler has PE ammo chutes, ignition harnesses, belts, ring sights for the .50 cals in the waist, and a few other odds & ends, no resin or masks... It also comes with crewmembers in flight gear... The decals are representing two of the Ploesti Raiders.. 

  • Some of them even include a kit from Hasegawa!!!!!!

     This is the -D model, but the decals are for "Strawberry -female dog-" and "Moby Dick".

     A Promodeler would say on the box wouldn't it? The box on this kit just says "Monogram Classics".

     I guess all that resin and PE stuff would add up quick wouldn't it?  I got the kit with all that included for $60 shipped to my door. I new it had some resin and PE pieces in it, but I didn't realize it had as much as it does.

    The pro-modeler kits say so on the box. The monogram classics are great kits though.

    All that aftermarket stuff would add up pretty quick, but sometimes you get lucky. I'd say you made out pretty well for all you got. Have fun with it. And dont let it own you! The fuselage halves can be a pain you know where as well as the wing to fuselage joint.

    Hans.....thanks for that info.

    DcaponeII...thanks for the wise *** comment, not really needed though.

  • Here's the link to the Promodeler b-24D.. Most of the time the Promodeler line includes weighted down tires, some simple form of PE or optional decals..

  • I have the PM A-26B Invader which does not come with anything

    The F-84G comes with PE

    2 of the JU88C-6 Nightfighters with nothing

  • I have a few in my stash and each one varied which is weird.. You would think they would be consistant in their line but guess not.

  • I believe the variation in the contents of the ProModeler line stems as much from trying to hit a target price for the kit than anything else.  and life would not be very interesting if we only focussed on what we needed.

  •    I put together a pro m. 1/48 F104 or 106 some time ago. It had the ladder, crew men and wighted wheels and some good decals, pretty good detail, but bad fit on the fus., but that was it.............Harv
